Easter Crate, with Maresa

Time got away from me! Thinking I had a couple more weeks before Easter, I didn't put this class on the original schedule. *blush*

This is an adorable project, and can be adapted for any occasion. In celebration of the Easter holiday I have chosen to use MME Quite Contrary papers, which are just so darned cute our customers can't get enough of them.

This project is designed with a clever opening mechanism that allows access to the milk cartons without de-constructing or damaging them. This makes it perfect to hold all sorts of goodies, everything from candies to small gifts.

A great gift for the young people in your life, and it works equally well for the young at heart. :)
